I can't comment on where your file is (though I still can't read any files from the page you reference). I too have been having intermittent periods when uploads just don't work. I know we're not paying for the service, and I appreciate that they may have lives over Christmas and all, but if they want people to upload free cultural stuff, the system really needs to be a bit more reliable than it is -- and there needs to be some information about the problems, and what is being done to fix them.

At the moment it's not clear where to go to get timely information, or even that there is any way to raise issues with the good folk at archive.org.

If ANYONE AT ALL knows what is going on, or how we can find out even an indication of whether they know of an issue or not, and maybe when they might get round to looking at it, I'd love to know.

I think the project is a great idea (and I'm sure it's underfunded), but some information would make life for the contributers A LOT less frustrating.

Help!

Problems:

Quite often (repeatedly now) the temp upload domain won't resolve - like the entries are not making it into the zone files, or DNS for that zone is down or something. eg, ia311506.us.archive.org

When you upload a file, no files are visible on the results page, after it claims to have completed (you just get metadata): http://www.archive.org/details/windsor-baptist-2007-12-16-am/

Help, please!!!

Where do we go for information?
